A trooper from the Indiana State Police (ISP)-Versailles District was honored Friday during an awards ceremony at the Indiana Government Center in Indianapolis.
ISP Spokesman Sgt. Stephen Wheeles says that State Police Superintendent Douglas G. Carter presented Trooper Korry Clark with
the award after being named the 2015 “Trooper of the District” for the Versailles Post. Clark was also honored for leading the district in DUI arrests last year and for being one of the top five troopers in the state in DUI arrests in 2015.
Wheeles says that Trp. Clark, who lives in Bartholomew County, was given the “Trooper of the District” award for “outstanding efforts in traffic and criminal enforcement, crash investigations, community service, and for exemplifying the integrity, service, and professionalism of an Indiana State Trooper.” Lieutenant Raymond Otter, Versailles District Commander, selected Clark to receive the award based on his performance during 2015. The Versailles District includes Bartholomew and Jackson Counties.
Wheeles says that during 2015, Trp. Clark, a seven-year ISP veteran, issued over 800 citations and 500 warnings. He also had 93 criminal arrests and conducted over 200 police services. State Police officials say that Clark’s 55 DUI arrests led the Versailles District and earned him the “Top 5” award for being fifth in the state in the number of impaired drivers arrested last year.
